"The Field " Dunkeld at Birnam Arts

"The Field " Dunkeld

The Field in Dunkeld is a place to grow vegetables by the community, for the community, and lies a short walk from the centre of Dunkeld.

As a community, we grow our produce on a large scale rather than small allotments, allowing us to produce enough throughout the growing season and beyond for our two weekly market stalls, including Tuesday mornings outside Birnam Arts.

Importantly, we grow our vegetables according to organic principles, with no insecticides or artificial fertiliser, and all our seeds are organically sourced. 

Annual membership runs from 1st February, supporting the ongoing costs and providing a 20% discount on produce.

Birnam & Dunkeld Film  society at Birnam Arts

Birnam & Dunkeld Film society

With a season which runs from September through to May, the society seeks to promote the arts, particularly the art of film and allied visual techniques. The programme is selected by the members to contain a mix of contemporary releases which may have not been shown in local commercial cinemas as well as old classics and favourites.

Films are shown at Birnam Arts, usually on the second & fourth Sundays of each month, starting at 7:30pm Doors open at 7:00pm and there is a bar and light refreshments available before each screening.

Membership of the society is £25 for the season. Visitors and guests are welcome.

Yoga with Iona at Birnam Arts

Yoga with Iona

Vinyasa flow yoga allows you to move in and out of postures guided by the breath through flowing sequences. During the class we will move from pose to pose, working through a serious of forward bends, twists, backbends and inversions.

Classes will vary week on week with different postures and sequences each week, allowing you to build strength as well as flexibility and mobility. I hope that my students experience the benefits that this practice gives to me.

Join Iona on a Tuesday at 7.30pm for Vinyasa flow yoga. This class is suitable for anyone with a basic understanding of yoga. If you are a beginner, or you want to find out more, please get in touch before booking.

My alternative office, my morning cup of coffee, the place where we run our workshops, meet friends, come to concerts ... Without Birnam Arts our community would lose a bit of its soul.

Join our team
of volunteers

From the Box Office to the Gift Shop and Beatrix Potter exhibition, our wonderful team of more than 50 incredible volunteers work with us to welcome the public to our beautiful building, helping at events, sell tickets, artworks, and beautiful gift items. 

From time to time we need to boost the group of volunteers, and now is such a time. We are working towards expanding our hours from five days a week to seven days a week, or to help us promote the great shows available, and therefore are looking for a few more good people.

'I like helping at Birnam Arts as it is such a great asset to the community and all the permanent staff are really friendly.'
- Tina, Shop & Beatrix Potter Exhibition Volunteer.
